2013 Color of the Year in Flowers

By December 7, 2012

Follow me on:

I can never get enough orange in the flower garden and vase, so I enjoyed the Pantone 2012 color of the year, tangerine, in the form of rudbeckia, poppies, pansies, and mums. The 2013 color of the year, emerald, is an about-face from any hue of orange but equally vibrant in the flower garden. I have long depended on green flowers, from zinnias to bells of Ireland, to soften or liven up my garden palette, depending on the blooming partner I pair it with. Perhaps horticulturists will respond to this color trend by introducing some new green flower varieties for 2013!
